“I had an important issue - the development of the Carpathians, especially attracting investment to ski resorts. We agreed that after COVID-19 we will be able to bring together Austrian business and specialists. I am even ready to provide our plane to gather all Austrian businessmen and meet them in our Carpathian Mountains to show all the prospects of the region," Zelensky stressed.

He added that ski resorts bring Austria EUR 15 billion annually.

Zelensky stressed that the Ukrainian state is ready to provide infrastructure, and also recalled that large-scale road repairs are underway in the Carpathians.
